Something annoying about
ls -l command is it shows only hour and minute for a file(like 08:30). How can I see the second portion(like 08:30:44)?
man 1 ls and search for 'second' does not give any clue.

Does your version of ls support the
--time-style option? If so:
ls -la --time-style=full-iso blah -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 2011-11-08 18:02:08.954092000 -0700 blah
The more simple way is:
which is equal to
ls -l --time-style=full-iso
If you want to show entries as hidden files starting with
ls --full-time -a
For OS X, it looks like the best you get is:
ls -l -T
ls(1) manpage on 10.10.5:
-T When used with the -l (lowercase letter ``ell'') option, display complete time information for the file, including month, day, hour, minute, second, and year.
An alternative to the approved answer - you can use a custom format like in the date command if "--time-style=full-iso" output is too detailed for you:
ls -l --time-style=+"%b %d %Y %H:%M:%S" blah -rw-rw-r-- 1 root root 0 Feb 03 2014 01:13:01 blah
man ls instructions simply
ls -e works fine !
For FreeBSD, it would be:
ls -la -D %Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S
